Sentry MidRange

Dimensions: 1.76″ x 0.84″ x 0.17″

Tag overview

With a best-in-class read range of more than 25 feet, the Sentry MidRange RFID tag is designed to achieve optimal read ranges with a minimal footprint. It’s the ideal solution for large indoor or outdoor metal assets found in warehouse and manufacturing environments.

At less than 1.5 square inches, the Sentry MidRange RFID tag is a small footprint tag solution for a wide range of a metal assets. It provides consistent, accurate readings for intermodal transportation, construction and agricultural equipment, HVAC assets and more.

For more demanding environments, an optional UV-stabilized ABS or polycarbonate encasement is available for enhanced durability.
